At first I was annoyed to see that Yanick Paquette wasn’t drawing this issue, but Marco Rudy was pretty much the perfect fill-in, he maintained the book’s style and really did justice to some of the crazy layouts this book has in it’s various dream sequences and hallucinations. This was a transition issue really, with a lot of exposition once again, but the true story of the battle between the forces of life and death is beginning to be developed a lot more (both here and in Animal Man) and I’m getting really excited for what is sure to be an epic battle. I do wish that Snyder would step back a little bit from the crazy big picture stuff for a bit and focus a bit more on Alec Holland as a character, we got a little bit more of his disorientation and fears about coming back to life again this issue, but I’d like more. William Arcane is a great new villain though, the stuff he does with the tumours and what have you is fucked up to say the least.

This book went from being the best book at DC since the reboot.. to now being possibly the best book in all of comics. Top 3, certainly, at the very least.

I agree about William Arcane, that little kid is easily one of my favourite new villains.
